United Performance Metals Expands Slitting/Edging Operations

Thursday, July 13, 2017

United Performance Metals (UPM) has added a new edging line at its Hamilton, OH, headquarters and boosted its slitting and edging capabilities at its West Coast branch in La Mirada, CA.

The Ohio headquarters installed new edging equipment, while the existing Ohio edging line and 12-in. slitting equipment have been transferred to the California branch. This allows for slitting and edging capabilities in both facilities. 

“The additional edging capability in our West Coast facility complements the current slitting operations in that branch," says J.J. Johnson, UPM director of operations. "Having edging capacity in multiple locations allows us to offer our customers shorter lead times and faster delivery, regardless of our customers' geographic locations.”
